Not so wonderful was watching my little boy become more and more emotional, clingy and sullen as the week went on... it was only 4 days away from me, but by Friday, he was hanging on for dear life. "Mommy coming back?" over and over and over. Joy set a timer for him at one point, so he would know exactly when I was coming home. Pretty cute. He does love his school, all his new friends and aunties, and is really quite excited about it, but still, the absence of mommy took a toll. Sigh. What to do? I have the most skeleton schedule I can have and still survive... but we'll eventually figure it out.
I do, however, feel like a square peg trying to fit back into the round hole of my life. It's an awkward and slightly uncomfortable sensation that I'm sure I will work out over time. But right now, it's strange.
And OK weather... enough! I loved the few days of sunshine but PLEASE, let's snow or shine already. This middle ground of gray and rain? This is NOT why I live in Eastern Washington!!!
